City officials planned to announce Thursday details regarding a parade and rally for the White Sox.

City Hall sources said late Wednesday that the celebration "probably" would be on Monday, beginning with a motorcade of players and their families leaving U.S. Cellular Field. The motorcade likely will wind through several Chicago neighborhoods before arriving at Grant Park for a rally.

Not sure why they are picking Monday. I was hoping for Saturday so I wouldn't have to miss any work. Regardless, I HAVE to be there. I can't believe we are discussing a parade for the Sox!! Holy CRAP is this awesome!

Well, if it had to be a weekday Monday is ideal. Most downtown employers will let people out to enjoy it. It allows time to plan for everything, etc...

I agree that Saturday would have been the best, but...

ITS A FRICKIN WORLD SERIES CELEBRATION!!!!!!!!!!!

On the Mike North show, they just said there's going to be a parade on Monday that ends up in Grant Park, no time announced.

:(: Argh, this sucks. Why cant it be saturday. there is no way I can takle time off to be there. Crap. I was really hoping for saturday. Oh well, at least I got to be at the UC last night. As close to a real game atmosphere as you can get I think. What a blast. Just mad I have to miss the parade.

CRAP! I hope its not Monday...I don't know if I'll be able to take off/leave early. Whats worse, my boss is in a pissy mood so it probably wouldn't be a good time to ask him. :whiner: If anyone finds out the time, please let us know

At least if it's on Monday during the day, Loop fans can see some of the parade/rally on their lunch break. That's my plan.

Ha... I think it's funny that it will be on Halloween since this season has been so magical already. We can just say we are all going as White Sox fans this year :D:

Congrats to the SOX! Through thick and thin they never gave up - I think we would've beaten ANY team from any time this year!
